Thanks - that will do

The Concerto rally has made me try hard to figure out how I can get it. So I thought of letting go of my LISA III. I need an amplifier to drive the T1's which the LISA can not do at all. At the same time I want to use my Grados once in a while.

I really enjoy SR325 on the LISA III and that pair has been my preferred home-setup for a long time. Can anyone compare the LISA with the Concerto? What will I get in comparison if I make that move?

Try shoving a AD797 opamp into the Lisa III? Maybe that'd get you a preview of the sound of the Concerto - at a price, of course.

Does anyone compare Concerto with Rudi's NX03??? since their price are similar and both in solid state....

I just picked Meier Audio Corda Concerto from postmen.
It is clear that Corda can not be assessed after 5 minutes ... but the first impression is great

More soon ...

PS. Serial number 00004

Thx.

Sorry for my poor language skills.

First impressions are ... please remember that my source is CD Onkyo 7511, to first session I used:
Metallica - Load
Coma - first out of the darkness
Clint Mansell & Kronos 4 - Requiem for a dream
Hey - MTV Unplugged
Shakira - She Wolf
Aga Zaryan - Looking Walking Being (Impressive Jazz made in Poland for Blue Note Records )

... yes, first impressions in brief

1st Excellent look of the amplifier, simple design but all fitting perfectly, great content - everything is made from aluminium, it looks much better than in pictures. Blue LEDs illuminate too strong but I can live with this trifle.

2nd From the first sound (I put headphones on the head 3 hours after activating music) You can hear that sound is rich in details.
- AKG 271 mk II and Sony's HD 7509 shows that they have nice bass skills when they are properly driven,
- AMAZING scene ... close to OTL's but different... it is hard to describe...I can feel the "space/air" but the instruments are not"in a vacuum".

We get also completely black background (lack of noise, hum, etc.) and a phenomenal crossfeed.

better be glad your are in Poland! I would be visiting with a box full of headphones and a Denon receiver!

I have not been this excited about getting an amp since I purchased my first SP from Mikaihl. (sorry, know he is a dirty word now)

You want this amp. You need this amp.You want this amp. You need this amp.

...at least that's what my wallet keeps whispering to me and damn if it hasn't convinced me!


So with a T1 on order, I think this amp would make a great pairing.
post #177 of 827
lol, I stopped my T1 order to get this amp... but I have SO many other great headphones. I am sure I will be happy with it.

Well, I'd have to sell my JVC HA-DX1000 to buy this amp but I'd rather have both cans. I'd like to keep the JVC to compare, then sell but if a buyer calls, she'll have to go.

I want to get down to one main can.
post #179 of 827
there is no way I could ever be down to one can..... I am to much of a collector. luv to hear the differences in sound between phones and amps, Just wish I could review like some of the other guys on the forum.

Congrats! I've hoped to get mine for this weekend, too. But it is still with Swiss customs. A pitty that Switzerland is not in the EU: no customs procedure, no delay, no additional taxes, no customs handling fees. On the other hand the price (incl. shipping) for countries outside the EU was only Euro 515 instead of 595 .

BTW did you know that Jan has a seriously great offer for the Concerto & HD800 combo? 25% off the Concerto if you buy the Sennie at the same time. I didn't know about that and had ordered just the Concerto for Euro 515 about three weeks ago. Yesterday I decided to look around for a HD800 at a good price. It is still not available in Switzerland! I emailed Jan and he offered it to me for Euro 725! Regular price in Germany is Euro 990, for export it is Euro 850 w/ shipping included. He deduced Euro 125 from the Concerto even though I had ordered and paid for it quite some time ago. So if you have already ordered the Concerto and are thinking about getting the HD800 it will be yours for Euro 725 .
